The Covert Player is about to take its debut, launching Wednesday, January 16th at 1 am, EST, and in anticipation I’d like to give a review as to its features and benefits.
But first, the question must be asked…why another video player? I already own The Traffic Player and there is already a large number of video players on the market today.
Over the past year there has been an onslaught of new video players that have arisen. All of them are fascinated with adding html overlays on top of the video container, everything from banners to buttons inside the video container. Even more expensive video players being launched, like one being released this week, offer nothing new…but continue to add content inside the video container. Some even attempt to come with a page creator and then charge you $300-$400. Your joking, right?
I have opted to NOT get into the HTML Overlay game for video players. Why? If video helps conversions, why do we want to distract the viewers experience by inserting banners, buttons, etc., inside the video container? For me, I would rather add any Call To Action instructions with Captions and Voice.
This brings me to the Covert Player and why I designed it. Watch the Introductory Video by clicking on the first thumbnail below.The Covert Player is unlike any other video player on the market. The original idea came to me one day when I was watching some videos on CNN.com’s website. If you click on this CNN.com link you can see on the left sidebar some thumbnails of videos, that when you click on them they open and close…without losing the text. The videos are seamless and fully integrated into the website. This is great for viewers perspective, as well as from a seo perspective since it allows you to put more text on your pages and posts. Here is a training video on “How To Add Covert Player To Widgets Areas” (ie, sidebars, footer or header widget areas). As you can see, it works like gangbusters. There are many more features and options available. Make sure you video the Covert Player to see all features available to you.
As an incentive to order the Covert Player during launch week I am adding the following Covert Player Bonus. Everyone who orders during launch week will get a complimentary upgrade to the Covert Player, FlowPlayer module, set to be released a week after launch. During the initial launch, Covert Player will have Youtube and Vimeo supports. We are adding Flowplayer 5.2 so that you can play self hosted videos, or videos hosted on your amazons3.
After launch week, the price for the FlowPlayer module will be more than double. I am also adding a lot of bells and whistles to the FlowPlayer module, so you want to get in early.
Now, to show off more features…here are the TOP 5 Awe Inspiring Videos Of 2012:
Pretty nifty…eh? The Covert Player has the ability to add Top Lists from Youtube at the click of a buttom: Most popular videos, most watched, most discussed, top rated, top favored. You can set it for the “Most Discussed Videos For Today, or for This Week,” for example. This is awesome! You can add your own playlists in membership sites for training/tutorials and use the Embed Pulldown method.

People will naturally ask, why did I develop another video player? Why not just add on more features to your existing Traffic Player? There are reasons for this:
- It is practically impossible to have every option available on one script. Each has its strengths.
- Traffic Player uses Flowplayer ver 3.2 while Covert Player will be using the newest Flowplayer ver 5.2.
If you have any questions at all, feel free to write a comment and I will try my best to answer. Full features will be revealed on the Salespage at launch. Please, no support questions here. My support desk is here.
